Founded in 2005, Etsy is an online marketplace where you can find anything from vintage, handmade, custom-made jewellery and accessories to home decor, paintings and toys. Unlike Amazon, you’ll shop from a large online community of independent creators, artists, collectors on Etsy – everything on site is sold directly by independent sellers! Etsy offers a wide variety of products which most of them are not available in Singapore because sellers are mostly based overseas.
Currently, not all items on Etsy can be shipped directly to Singapore. But you can now explore and shop unique finds from independent creators on Etsy and shipped to Singapore hassle-free with the help of Buyandship! If you’re looking for gift ideas, rare collectibles, personalized jewellery, Etsy is for you! Follow our step-by-step guide below and start shopping!
